“Whatever you are physically...male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy--all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside.”
― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

Well, the stars are always out. It's just that nighttime is when I see what resembles you most. It's too bad that the way I love you isn't visible. Then everyone would be blind, though. I've never even liked the day time. So the stars appear when my enemy goes down or over or whenever and I'll just lay on the trampoline with you, we can watch the lights burn.

I love that final image of the stars burning over the trampoline. You evoked one of my own special memories of lying silently on a trampoline and marveling at the stars.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.
